This stone was found by Richard Meinz at Sunstone Butte Mine in June this last summer. 128 carats originally, now 65 carats finished by renowned cutter/carver Darryl Alexander from Gilbert, Arizona. The stone shows all the colors of Oregon Sunstone and has a rare color change angle of around 5 degrees giving it a look of aurora borealis when tilted slightly. The stone has been entered into the 2016 American Gem Trade Association competition in Tucson, Arizona.
